Description

Imagine baked chicken breast that is actually juicy and tender. I am talking about the juiciest baked chicken breast with Greek souvlaki marinade.


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon, garlic, oregano, mint, parsley and salt and pepper.
  2. Place chicken breasts a large dish and pour the marinade over top. Turn chicken around to ensure that they are fully coated with the marinade.
  3. Cover the place with plastic cling wrap and place in the refrigerator. Let the chicken marinate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven for 450 F. Place chicken on a lined baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink inside and the internal temperature reaches 165 F in the thickest part of the chicken breast.
  5. Take it out of the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes. Serve with salad, rice or pita bread and a side of tzatziki sauce.
